it in some manner? >> very excited. i was there in person. when obama laid down that daunt let i was very excited. >> do we understand how deep the issue of inequality is in this country? is this one we try to understand? >> people understand it for personal and work reasons. i have been traveling a lot. when you see poverty from suburbs to washington state people get it. we is see poverty in the suburbs. the confusion comes in when the solutions are talked about. you don't have to tell anyone about poverty. it is no longer them, those people in the ghetto. it is our cousins, aunts, uncles. i think people get it. >> you say it comes in when the solutions are talked about. what do you mean? >> right. a lot of conservatives running around saying the reason we are poor is the government spends too much on unworthy people, we have a growing debt that is going to crush us and confuse the idea of a personal household debt with a federal debt. i don't think we have to lecture anyone in the country that poverty exists. >> how offensive is it when you hear that no matter where you are from, where
she and president obama sat down forgave us a peak into their relationship and how things have seemingly changed in the last few years between them. is that a surprise looking at where we started in 2008? >> on the face of it, it is a surprise. they have evolved, people close to secretary clinton have talked about this kind of interesting relationship that has developed. it has certainly been very constructive. they are happy to make a public show of it. those of us that cover the ins and outs of this will look at it in the the 2016 contest, wondering if vice president isn't so happy that the big interview he does to begin his second term is not with him but the outgoing secretary of state. those questions will be raised. i think the point that's interesting to me. if you look at the coalition of voters that president obama put together for his second term, they seem to be voting blocs that could naturally flow to hillary clinton as the nominee, particularly as a historic nominee if she is able to become the first woman president. it is important to point out as much as we fixa
something done. lawmakers say they are more optimistic down the have been in years. >> days before going to vegas to lay out his vision for immigration reform, president obama was at the white house huddling with latino lawmakers. a bipartisan group of senators is about to reveal its own plan. "the comprehensive approach to finally have an immigration law we can live with. >> it features a path to citizenship for immigrants living illegally in the country. it has the backing of three of the top democrats and three top republicans including marco rubio and arizona's john mccain. >> we cannot go on a brevard with 11 million people living in the shadows of an illegal status. >> it is one of few issues in which both sides are calling for a sweeping reform. >> there are a lot of democrats who once and for all want to solve this problem and fix the mess of a broken immigration system. many of us agree. >> i see things that were once off the table for agreement and discussion being back on the table with a serious pathway forward. >> there are potential sticking point. >> enforcement needs to b
at least 200 additional. a federal appeals court struck down president obama's recess appointment of 3 commissioners to the national relations board. one senator is publicly calling the federal commissioners to resign and the rulings they made to be invalidated. a republican from nebraska is here now. senator, thank you for your time today. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> what do you make of this ruling, basically saying, the three folks that the president appointmented to the board, it was unconstitutional, they were no good? >> it's the right ruling. the court of appeals looked at what the president did and said, look, youacked unconstitutionally. you can't declare when congress is going to be in recess, which is exactly what president obama tried to do. so they said, not only are the members unconstitutionally, but the action that they took is also illegal and unconstitutional. and they voided that. so the presidentee got a mess on his hands. these members who are still up there, there are two still up there, in my judgment, need to step down and step down now. >> are you call
anyone down during his life. musial died last week at his home at the age of 92. >>> as we count down the days until the super bowl, player safety is taking centerstage. in fact, president obama says if he had a son, he's not sure he would let him play football because it's too dangerous. the commander in chief talked with the magazine, the new republic and said the game's violence is taking a toll on the players. he also said that the game will probably have to make changes and will make things less exciting for fans but safer overall for the players. >>> in basketball, the ref calls a penalty when there's an extra person on the court. but when something else joins the game, things can really get interesting. a bat found its way into the marquette providence game yesterday interrupting the game for several minutes. everyone had a laugh when the coach of providence used his assistant coach for protection. several attempts to catch it failed. they actually had to turn off the lights to trick the bat into hiding. >> was that a joke or was he really trying to use him as a human shield? >
the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker
different this year. but i felt a lot safer watching this thing when mr. and mrs. obama got out of that limousine and walked up the avenue. i felt that they were well-protected. i felt the crowds -- i talked to some people going down there on u street, that's my hangout, on u street sunday night where most of these people are going down there and all of them felt that they were secure. >> dave, joe? >> well, i covered it. i'm sure you all were there in your various positions. but i was up in the stands right by where the president was going to speak watching down on him. able to look out at this expanse and more to the point, trying to get there very early in the morning and it was tough. unfortunately, as well as it went and i think personally if i can give a personal opinion one time, if my editor is watching, one time. it seemed generally to be going rather well. lots and lots of people, though. lots and lots of rules and security. we have gotten more towards an armed camp. red zones and green zones and tickets and things and bureaucracy. it's obviously needed to do because y
in the direction of the white house to wish the obama administration success in passing tighter gun control laws. >> tens of thousands of protestors took to the streets of san francisco for the anniversary of legalizing abortion. pro-life protestors marched down market street from the civic center to justin herman plaza demanding roe v wade be turned over. a law student who testified before congress about contraception was a guest speaker. >> there is a more profound sight about access. about affordability and insurance coverage and making sure people especially in rural areas have access. >> i would like to see everyone question abortion more. they say it should be legal and safe they don't talk about rare. >> as many as 40,000 people attended the pro-life rally. it's the biggest antiabortion event on the west coast. >>> supreme court could weigh in on the health care law requiring employee insurance plans to cover the cost of contraceptions. dozens of lawsuits have been filed by charities saying the mandate violates their religious beliefs. antists say appeals courts have made conflicting ruli
